Because it’s what I do and what I love, here goes inspiration.

Girls Showing Their Pets in the Same Way

I recently stumbled upon Hans Eijkelboom’s People of the Twenty First Century, a book in which the author spent 20 years compiling pictures of people who dress the same way.

This video of women showing their pets online in the exact same way blows that to mind boggling proportions. Continue reading Girls Showing Their Pets in the Same Way

Life With Shisei: The Sacred Art of the Japanese Tattoo

Life with Shisei is one of the awesome shows running on VICE Japan’s Youtube channel which points a light on Horiyoshi III, a famous and enigmatic Japanese tattoo artist with a very serious philosophy about the art and his full-body tattoo suits.

While I can’t relate to his lifestyle of line of work, I find that some of his philosophies as applied to any art form are valid and worth listening to if only to make us think about what we do and why. Check it out.

Studio Gojira Shirt Was My Lost Birthday Gift

Studio Gojira Shirt Was My Lost Gift

Who doesn’t like a nice ironic shirt? I don’t know the answer to that, but I’ll tell you right now I do and I cried a little on the inside when I found out this Ript Apparel design was on sale during my birthday and I didn’t take advantage of the sale.

Even though pigboom, the Philippine designer who made it, has his own online store I’m pretty sure this Studio Gojira design won’t cost $10 if and when he puts it on sale. Darny darn.

Update: Yup, his design is up on his official Red Bubble page for $30. A bit pricey (and yes, before you go there I know you can get it for $20 in other places), but it’s worth it if you got the cash and can help support the artist directly.

What’s Playing Steven Universe?

What's Playing Steven Universe?

Apparently it’s Animal Crossing and my favorite Zelda of all time, The Wind Waker. This is the lovely work of Amanda Winterstein, a background painter on Steven Universe, which you should binge watch now that you have time on the holiday break.
